WSOP Double Bracelet Weekend

WSOP Double Bracelet Weekend

Monday, 3 June 2013

A busy weekend of WSOP action saw not one but two bracelet winners crowned. After making his way past 480 players, Trevor Pope gave poker journalists scope for some interesting headlines after beating the UK’s David Vamplew heads-up.

Having started the final table with more than half the chips in play and the only player above the tournament average, it always looked as though it was Pope’s title to lose. Indeed, despite being flanked by some of the world’s best grinders, including Dan Kelly, Jared Hamby and Darryll Fish, Pope was able to keep his composure and clinch the first open bracelet of the series.

After making light work of the final few players, it took Pope just seven hands to send Vamplew to the rail in second place. When all the chips were in the middle it was a classic race between Vamplew’s A-6 and Pope’s picket fives. However, as the board developed and neither of Vamplew’s over cards appeared, the pot was pushed towards Pope who was then able to lift his first piece of WSOP silverware.

While Pope was clinching his first title, Charles Sylvestre was coming through a frantic $1,000 re-entry event that featured more than 3,000 players.

Despite the low buy-in event attracting a mammoth field, all the action was over in just three days. Indeed, in the final throes of the event Sylvestre was able to overcome Seth Berger to claim his first WSOP title and a career defining $491,360.
